This comment is about waiting times for appointments.
I was referred by my GP on November 27th for a DEXA Scan. To date l have yet to receive an offer of an appointment 62 days following referral ( average waiting times recorded as 22 days on the web site).
In spite of several attemts to contact the department l have been unable to speak to anyone about this and find out where l am on the list. Today l contacted my GP practice and was told they had received several complaints about the same issue. My referral will be re faxed with a note attached.
Although l am not unsympathetic to the pressures of managing referals to have received no offer of an appointment after this lenght of time is unacceptable.
